Seawind Catamarans

This company appears to be winning a lot of awards for the new 1160 and solid reviews for the 1000. Just wondering what the thoughts/opinions/reviews were of this company and how their boats compare to the other multi hulls out there (ie Gemini etc)

I'm no expert, but I like these boats a lot. They're quite wide for catamarans, but the open space in the saloon is very nice. Very comfortable sailing on the 1000 and I imagine even better on the 1160. I know that the 1000XL has better reviews for sailing. It's the same as the 1000, but the hulls are extended 2-3 feet aft.

The real problem IMHO with the Seawind catamarans is how open the deck/salon is to the elements... you don't really have a cabin...you have a tent that has hulls under it...

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

How about those Antares 44i...WOW!!! I liked the Seawind, but would have the same concern as SD mentions above, but then I guess it depends somewhat on where you're sailing too?

Cheers,

Here's an article from the company's website that was published by Blue Water Sailing magazine:http://www.seawindcats.com/system/fi...ind%201000.pdf
I know some of these boats have made long offshore passages. The article tells it like it is.
